At Union Pacific, we are looking for the best of the best, women who are ready to be pioneers in an ever-changing industry. You won’t be just another employee; the work you do matters. You’ll support America’s economy by helping to deliver goods and materials to communities. We provide opportunities to our employees every day to challenge them to grow personally and professionally. Union Pacific prides itself in the amount of programs put forth to recruit, retain, and promote the hard working people that help us build America. Our philosophy to promote from within our company is real.
We understand the value diversity and inclusion brings to our organization, which is why we are proud to support eight different Employee Resource Groups including a women’s organization, LEAD- Lead Educate, Achieve and Develop. LEAD fosters an environment that increases opportunities for women to be recruited, engaged, and advanced as Union Pacific leaders while uniting women from across Union Pacific’s vast rail network. LEAD boasts seven, committees and subcommittees that host year-round events focused on development and networking, fundraising, philanthropy, STEM, community service and outreach, women’s history, work-life balance and more!
One of America's most recognized companies, Union Pacific Railroad connects 23 states in the western two-thirds of the country by rail, providing a critical link in the global supply chain. The railroad's diversified business mix includes Agricultural Products, Energy, and Industrial and Premium. Union Pacific serves many of the fastest-growing U.S. population centers, operates from all major West Coast and Gulf Coast ports to eastern gateways, connects with Canada's rail systems and is the only railroad serving all six major Mexico gateways. Union Pacific provides value to its roughly 10,000 customers by delivering products in a safe, reliable, fuel-efficient and environmentally responsible manner.
About 24 percent of women employees at Union Pacific hold non-union jobs, while women make up about 5.3 percent of Union Pacific’s total workforce. Women represent one of the company’s biggest diversity opportunities. As a railroad, our business is challenged by a growing shortfall of skilled trade workers due to a decrease in people choosing to learn a trade. Because men make up the majority of our industry's workforce, Union Pacific is focused on recruiting women to join our team.
